Wow is one the first words that comes out of my mouth when it comes to my mind when I think about the anime Death Parade. This anime was so good that it didn’t take me that long to finish and it’s pretty short with there only being 12 episodes.
The story centers around Decim
and he is was is known as an arbitrator who pretty much judges souls on whether they go to Heaven and are reincarnated or Hell and go into the void. The only way he is able to weigh their souls is by having them play games which brings out the blackest parts of their souls.
Now when I first started to watch it I thought that each episode was going to involve a new set of players but while this was the case there was also a deeper story involved. Another character that comes into the story is simply known as the Dark Haired Woman
until later on in the series when you learn her name. The story ultimately revolves around her and her backstory which takes you on a whole new roller coaster ride of emotions.
During the series you learn more about the place they are in called Quindecim and learn more about what exactly the job of an arbitraitor is and what that role entails for them. You also know more about a few other characters such as Nona
and also Ginti
another arbitraitor and rival to Decim.
I absolutely loved both the opening and ending of the show mostly because the opening was so upbeat and made the show a little more light hearted but it was overwhelmingly so to the point where you were mislead as to how the show would be.
One thing I definitely want viewers to keep in mind is that this anime can be a bit of tear jerker towards the later part of the series so be prepared. I definitely was prepared for all the feels towards the end but it was definitely worth it.
Overall I gave this series a 10/10! It was so amazing and I totally which there was a 2nd season for this show. Not only that but the feelings it gave me at the end of remembering to live life to fullest is something I won’t ever forget. So comment down below on what you thought of this series if you’ve seen it. Also let me know what you thought of this review! Can’t wait to read your comments.
